The Boozy Art of Diving

The last Art of Diving featured Russian divers in the old brass helmets and, at the risk of stereotyping, I'm sure they'd approve of the theme of this post!

Here's a selection of diving-themed ads for various alcoholic products. As ever, the Art of Diving recommends that you do not drink and dive!

1910. Artist unknown but the poster was produced by the famous printer and lithographer F. Champenois.



1938. Artist unknown.



1950. Artist unknown.



1954. Painted by Robert Smullyan Sloan.



Just to show it wasn't just "Deep Sea Divers" who liked a tipple! 1956. Painted by Richard Deane Taylor.



1957. Artist unknown.



1968. Artist unknown.
